    I hope so too since it might protect the video board a little better.

    May want to forward your thoughts to the company doing the actual building, I'm sure they haven't thought of that.

    I'd rather spend my time complaining about it on the Internet

    Re: Release: SCHEMATIC DESIGNS FOR SOUTH END ZONE PROJECT RELEASED

    I've been looking through the first bid (expected completion date of August, 2014) and I notice that the first 25 rows of seats are in this "Phase 1" (there are 4 phases to this project) of the project. Will the first 25 rows of seats be complete for the first game this year or did they just add those to these phase plans for no reason?

    They are just in as a reference underlay for that package. It's common to do that. First phase is purely utility relocations.

    Yea, every other reference point said "not in this phase" or something of that nature, so I was somewhat curious as to why.

    I'm sure it's been asked already, but will there be an erection party for the new score board ;)

    If it lasts longer than 4 hours, we'll all have to see a doctor.

    Anyone else concerned about the new sez videoboard being able to hold up to the wind. All those people underneath. I think this is tragic planning in the making. Then what will stop the wind from taking out the nez scoreboard.

    If the SEZ gets destroyed by a tornado we're asking for it by naming our team the Cyclones. We should change our name with the groundbreaking of the SEZ. I'm thinking Iowa State Lake Bison as the obvious choice.

    I'm also worried about a strong west wind blowing the press box over into the stands.

    Here's the final presentation to the BoR. Sorry if its been posted elsewhere.

    Interesting that they are only using the Reimans donation to finance and selling bonds for the rest. I figured Jamie would try to get at least half in donations.
    Given how cheap interest rates are it probably is cheaper in the long run to pay for most of it with bonds instead of cash.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    It will more than likely be designed with 90MPH basic wind speed (3 second gust)
